Very Flawed Product
8 May 2014
Summary: I've been flying Microsoft Flight Simulator since the first version. And, I'm a retired airline pilot, having flown real airplanes for almost sixty years. It's installed with Acceleration on a new Windows 8.1 desktop. The program is constantly aborting for no good reason.
Summary: Bought this for my son and the product key wouldn't install and when we tried repeatedly to get tech help from Microsoft, they were absolutely useless. Had an older version which worked fine, which we replaced with this edition.

Summary: The graphics are awesome. The simulation is great. Lots of fun. You get all that....if it works. Beware, if you do not have a stable, up-to-date, top of the line system, it will not work. If you have a computer over 1 year old running XP or Vista, it is most likely will not be stable.
